Maternity Portrait Photographer


Creative. Stylish. Award-Winning.

Your maternity portraits are your one chance to look back at this specific moment in time, and say  "I Remember before you were born"

As professional portrait photographers, we specialise in all studio photography including, professional maternity photos. We are your local photographers working from a high street family photo studio. Our portrait studio has over 30 years of professional maternity photography experience creating maternity photos. Our maternity photo shoot experience compliments wonderfully with our pregnancy, newborn or baby photo shoots.

The at home sessions for maternity pictures, pregnancy or newborn photography can be fun too.

We will capture the best maternity pics for your walls, so that in the years ahead you will be proud of your maternity portraits, and as the years go by it will become more of a pleasure to look at your pregnancy bump portrait images fondly and with great memories. 

Time doesn't stand still unless captured in a Professional Portrait.

About Dean McDonald

about image
Hi, my name is Dean, and I am a professional family portrait photographer based in Bamber Bridge, Preston, Lancashire.I’ve been taking pictures for well over 30 years now. I grew up in a family where my fathers and grandfathers hobby was photography and I remember my grandfather used the bath to develop his photographs, I also remember the grief my grandmother gave him over the stains he left in the enamel from the process. I was fortunate enough to inherit their love for the photographic image, and thanks to them my passion for photography began as a 10 year old boy.The times and the techniques have changed over the years but the end results are the same. The requirements of today’s clients have changed, but in the end the result is the same, a perfectly printed image capturing a single moment in time. My profession is the best profession in the world, I get to FREEZE TIME!. I capture forever memories you’ll be proud to hang on your walls for years to come. The quality of my work will literally last a lifetime, I guarantee it. 

                           *MY 100% QUALITY GUARANTEE*

I am that sure of the quality and longevity of my work that I can make this promise "If any image ever becomes defective, I will fix it or replace it for free and with absolutely no cost to you".



"Wonderful images, better than I could of hoped for, Dean made use feel so comfortable the three hours just flew by. The end results for my album are amazing, we will definitely be back"  

Kelly Thompson

Stephanie Kerr

“Truly the sexiest photos I have ever had taken, wow I will be back to do this again without the bump”

K Thompson
“Felt totally comfortable in the studio with Dean. Photos were shot very tastefully during maternity shoot. Great ideas for the newborn shoot that I wouldn’t have thought of myself, and Dean was very patient with our little lady that wouldn’t cooperate for the most part! Got there in the end and totally happy with the shots – Thanks Dean!”
